The third and concluding volume of Thom Whigham's trilogy on the Paraguayan War is finally been published. Alas, it is in Spanish, just like the second volume. It is rumored that a single english language volume encompassing the two spanish ones is in the works. Let us hope so.

Is the first volume in english?

V1…English, YES

Why the remaining efforts are in Spanish is beyond me!

It appears that the Spanish versions are selling like hotcakes in South America. The first volume in English didn't do too well, hence the delay.

I wish I knew who to write to to DEMAND that the English version come out SOONEST!!!!! My Spanish is terrible; it's a pain reading with a dictionary in one hand.

I can dog read Spanish/French and to a lesser extent, Italian well enough, but certainly not in a leisurely/relaxing way, so for me to sit and struggle reading spanish text is no fun.

I agree, I wish I knew who to write for, because the first volume was pretty killer.

John, could you give me a link? I am really interested in this conflict.

I was wondering if there was going to be a volume 2 and then a 3. Now I know what happened.

No prob for me as I can read both :D The price is another matter…

Cloudy28 Nov 2012 7:12 a.m. PST

Lol. I was wondering what happened to the other volumes…

For Thom Whigham's books:


Also good is Terry Hooker's book:


There are others as well. Weep Grey Bird Weep is good, as is To the Bitter End.

It's a long walk for you, Dr. Whigham teaches at the University of Georgia.

Hello friends,
I am the author of Borders of Blood, a book recently released by Caliver Books –
BoB is a wargame system dedicated to War of the Triple Alliance.

Take care!

"Borders of Blood is a well-presented set of wargames rules, specifically for Wargaming the Parguayan War of 1864 – 1870, dovetailing almost exclusively with the War of Triple Alliance figure range by Perry Miniatures.

Rulesets can either offer something so intriguing, inspiring, or unique that they cause you to venture into a new period – think SAGA, Sharp Practice, or Frostgrave – or they offer a service to gamers who are already ‘into' a period or conflict. Borders of Blood is definitely a solid entrant in this latter category."
